DEADLINE EXTENDED: Proposals accepted on a rolling basis through June 15th.
Baltimore, MD. May 1, 2023 – According to conference organizers, this year’s Community College Humanities Association’s (CCHA) National Conference theme of “humanistic inquiries …[into] questions of value, power, community, identity, race, justice, healing, conflict, and transformation” is already providing a solid foundation to programming with many intriguing proposals that will surely inspire colleagues.
Now, in collaboration with organizers at the Austin Community College District which opened up more space, CCHA has a new opportunity to expand this year’s conference forum and celebrate a broad range of unique proposals that extend to every reach of the humanities in community colleges. So, please consider submitting a proposal and joining us for the conference.

The 2023 National Humanities Conference Call for Proposals is open until April 3rd!
Co-hosted by the National Humanities Alliance and the Federation of State Humanities Councils, the National Humanities Conference brings together representatives from colleges, universities, state humanities councils, cultural institutions, and other community-based organizations to explore approaches to deepening the public’s engagement with the humanities. The conference will be held October 25-29 in Indianapolis. With the help of our partners at Indiana Humanities, we look forward to a conference that offers ample opportunities to engage with local and regional culture and history.
In keeping with the state motto of Indiana, “The Crossroads of America,” the 2023 conference theme is “Crossroads.”
Crossroads are places of choice and possibility—creative, reflective, and forward-looking—and we invite proposals that consider how the public humanities have arrived at their current place, what that place looks like to us today, and where we wish to go from here. We especially encourage proposals that engage humanities practitioners, professionals, and scholars/academics to discuss shared or aligned destinations as well as proposals that explore and delineate how and why we diverge.
We encourage you to submit proposals and recruit others to do the same! Please contact Edward Moreno at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for support in submitting a proposal.
CCHA is happy to announce the dates for the CCHA National Conference to be held in Austin, Texas. This year, the Austin Community College District will host us from October 12-14. More information about the conference can be found here.
We are pleased to announce that the first 50 people to register for the conference will be reimbursed their fees–thanks to a generous grant from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. (Funds will be distributed at the conclusion of the conference.) What’s more, during the conference we will be awarding as many as 50 additional travel grants of up to $800 each to cover attendees’ travel expenses. Be on the lookout for further communications from CCHA on this opportunity!
